2002 Hyundai Santa Fe 6 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 56000 miles
I had a diagnosis of a defective alternator, and I replaced it with a rebuilt in June. In September, the battery went dead again and Auto Zone said the alternator was bad. They gave me another one. When I put the second one in, I checked the voltage drop accross the battery cables and also their resistance. Both readings were well within specs. In December the alternator was bad again. Am I the unluckiest person in the world or could something else be damaging the alternator?
